Original Description

Test with the early chambers slightly trochoid, close coiled and generally globular, later ones becoming much elongate, often 3 or 4 times as long as wide, the ends in some specimens somewhat contracted and with roughened projections, probably the bases of spines, the length of the chambers increasing very rapidly as added; wall finely perforate, smooth except for the ends of the chamber at the base on the ventral side. 

Diameter up to 0.55 mm.

The species is named in honor of Mr. P. W. Jarvis who has done such extensive collecting of Trinidad foraminifera.

Extra details from original publication
The chambers in this species are relatively much slenderer than in H. eocanica, and the ends of the chambers are often somewhat pointed and spinose. The two species are not found together so far as I have seen.
